Mathias Penguilly: Aliyah is a Hebrew term that Alexandra Saviana, a journalist in the Société de L’Express department, was interested in. How would you translate this word, “alya”?

Alexandra Saviana: “Alya” means “ascension” or “ascent”. Concretely, this word designates the fact for Jews of immigrating to settle in Israel. We can speak of the “rise” of the Jews in Israel.
